It’s 2022, my readers. We’re here. We made it in one piece. Except for sweet Betty White, may she rest in peace. I don’t know how she died, but she lived a long and fascinating life.
I have big plans for 2022. I was going to call this post “Resolutions,” but decided against it. Most people give up on their resolutions after the novelty wears off, and I’m no exception.
So instead of resolutions, I have plans. In no particular order:
Get Aislyn Kindergarten-Ready. I’m going to get her back on a timed interval potty schedule at least while I’m home. I had relaxed this practice for quite a while, just sending her to the bathroom when it made sense, but it’s easy to drop the ball that way.
Offer More Vegetables at Dinner. There are a few veggies they will eat. For example, Desmond loves beets (ewwwww) and peas, and Aislyn will sometimes eat carrots and likes cucumber.
Restore My Happy Place. I’m waiting on a set of 100 space-saving, non-slip clothes hangers from Wayfair. I’m going to clean out and reorganize the upstairs walk-in closet with my new clothes, which are mostly crowding my bedroom right now. I’m donating my old clothes to make room for the new ones.
I’m going to use the space as my morning dressing area (there’s a light in there, a mirror and a wall clock. All that’s missing is one of those cutesy, inspirational plaques, which I’m sure I can find at work).
I have Wednesday off because I’m doing inventory tomorrow. I might be able to work on this project some, then. Otherwise, next weekend. Hopefully I have the hangers by then.
Get Back on Track. I’m going to shed this holiday weight with better tracking and, with fewer working hours, do more biking.
Achieve My Lifetime Goal. I did this in 2018, so I know I can do it again. It’s not too far off.
Tie Up Loose Ends. This one is pretty self-explanatory. I hate letting things dangle indefinitely. My plan is to follow through on events I’ve initiated, satisfying their requirements and bringing them to full completion.
That’s all I have for now. I don’t want to be overly ambitious, as that could be overwhelming.
